GVHS School in session tomorrow
Hello Grand Valley High Students. This message is to inform you school will resume Thursday. Welcome back Cardinals.

February 18, 2019

Dear Parent/Guardian,

Grand Valley High School is hosting our 2019 Spring Parent-Teacher Conferences on Monday, February 25th, 2019 from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., please plan to attend with your child. Children respond to education better when they realize adults care about how they are performing in school.

All teachers will be in Cardinal Hall to meet with parents. Please stop in the office upon arrival to sign in. We will have a sheet available to let you know what table each teacher will be seated at.

Both educational content knowledge and classroom responsibility relating to your child will be discussed. As always, we invite and encourage you to communicate any concerns that you may have with your child's teachers. Conferences are on a walk in basis. Teachers MUST adhere to the 15 minute schedule in order to accommodate all parents.

On Tuesday, February 26th, Grand Valley High School will be in session. Our students will have regular classes and the busses will run at their normal times.

Thank you for your participation. We’re looking forward to this opportunity of sharing your child’s progress with you!
